Posted Thu Aug 2, 2012 at 11:05 AM PDT by

The first part of the animated adaptation of Frank Miller's highly acclaimed graphic novel will descend on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has slated 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part One' for Blu-ray on September 25.

It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired, and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now, when his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face, for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack.
